A Cow With A Story To Tell

Advantages: Different, amusing, valid points made about much of society
Disadvantages: Daft humour and situation comedy that you will either like or not; quite short

Review of Holy Cow - David Duchovny

The Truth is Out There...

Advantages: Unusual concept, celebrity author

Review of Eric (Big Book) - Terry Pratchett

Eric

Advantages: Funny moments, good main character, easy to read
Disadvantages: Not as good as other Pratchett books
